Professional Background

This is my sixth year teaching in a school setting and my third year at Our Lady of Good Counsel. I have previous experience teaching Middle School English and Literature. During my summers off, I have enjoyed tutoring, coaching softball and basketball for my town recreation.

Faith in Action

I feel blessed to work at a school who each day spreads the love of God. I strive to instill the love of God and kindness through my teaching.

Favorite Teaching Moment

My favorite teaching moment is every September, where I am given a new opportunity each year to meet my new students and watch us all grow together as a class throughout the year. I stumbled across a quote once that stated “I call my students ‘my kids’ because in our year together, they aren’t just kids on my class list they become a part of my heart.” I’ve used this as my mantra going forward. I tell my students each year that no matter how many years go by I will always be their teacher and they will always be my kids.

Favorite Food

Italian food and Tacos.
